Rune Factory 4 Europe Bound After All.


When Xseed decided last year that they would not be bringing the popular Harvest Moon spin-off Rune Factory 4 to Europe, fans of the fantasy farming sim were understandably disappointed. Last week however and completely out of the blue that disappointment began to disappear as word leaked that Rune Factory 4 had been submitted to be age rated in Germany. Not long after that Siliconera contacted Xseed to get the publisher’s official word and that word was good, Rune Factory 4 is coming to Europe after all,
“The situation is that we know the Rune Factory 4 fans in Europe have suffered enough with one cancellation already,” Xseed’s executive VP, Ken Berry told Siliconera before continuing. “We didn’t want to announce anything until the game passed certification and we were sure it’s digital-only eShop release was imminent since we are using a different programming house to try to pick up where the original dev team left off. Though I can’t disclose which development house is handling the PAL localization programming duties for us, I can say that it’s been in the works for months already and we hope to start the master submission process with NoE within the next couple weeks.”
So there it is, at least Rune Factory 4 is coming to Europe at some point, shame it’s digital only but as they, something is better than nothing.

  1. This is a pleasant surprise. I’m okay with digital releases if they are the only way of getting a title over here.

    1. I agree completely, if digital is the only way to get to play some of these games then digital it is. That said I’d still like to be offered a physical option, especially if ones been made available in America.

      1. One year since positing this comment I finally completed/reviewed the game.
